I’m not against Islamic religion, President Tinubu’s, Minister makes clarifications

The minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike on Wednesday, October 18, debunked reports making the rounds that his administration in Abuja was promoting policies that are against Islamic religious Alignments.

Wike disclosed that those trying to whip religious sentiment were mischievously doing so in order to score some cheap political points.

The minister said this when he received on a courtesy visit, members of the Abuja National Mosque Management Committee, led by its chairman, the Etsu of Nupe, His Royal Highness, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar.

Wike noted that he has no reason to instigate hate speech against any religious groups but to support any that has a genuine cause.


While assuring that FCT would not hesitate to support the maintenance of the National Mosque, or the National Ecumenical Centre, having been declared as a national monument, he also called on religious leaders to preach National unity and peaceful coexistence.

He said: “No government will hesitate to support the maintenance of a National Monument, be it for Christians or Moslems.”

Earlier in his remarks, the Etsu Nupe urged the Minister to support the maintenance project of the National Mosque, which he disclosed had been stalled for some time now.

He also pleaded with the Minister to grant the Committee more time to develop plots of land allocated to it by FCTA.
